The New England Patriots have re-signed cornerback Marquice Cole and linebacker Niko Koutouvides.

Both unrestricted free agents whose signings were announced Wednesday are special teams players and substitutes on defense.

Cole joined the Patriots before last season after spending three years with the New York Jets. He started one of the 14 regular-season games he played for New England with 12 tackles and one interception on defense and seven tackles on special teams.

Koutouvides is a nine-year veteran who played for the Patriots the past two seasons. He played the last 14 regular-season games last year, making one tackle on defense and eight on special teams.

Both appeared in the Patriots' two postseason games.
